Patriots & Mets Owners May Be Ready to Field Overwatch Teams - MMORPG.com

Overwatch may have scored some heavy-hitters for its upcoming professional Overwatch League. Sources have told ESPN that both Robert Kraft, owner of the New England Patriots, and Sterling Equities, owner of the New York Mets, have reportedly signed on for professional teams. Additionally, the Overwatch League has signed on cities to host teams including San Francisco, Los Angeles, Seoul, Shanghai, New York and Boston.

No buy-in cost was revealed for the Mets and Patriots owners, though it is reported that both the cities of Los Angeles and San Francisco bought into the League for $20M to be paid over time.

Of the four American cities, two will be occupied by groups non-endemic to esports ownership. Patriots parent company Kraft Sports Group is guaranteed the Boston spot, as previously confirmed by ESPN. In New York, the spot will be owned and operated by Sterling VC, which is the venture capital subsidiary of Sterling Equities, and will be run by Jeff Wilpon, multiple sources said.

You can read the full report over at ESPN.
